Thiago Silva's wife sends message to Timo Werner after slamming his display in first leg

Thiago Silva’s wife, Isabelle da Silva, has looked to patch things up with Timo Werner after the striker helped Chelsea beat Real Madrid to secure a place in this year’s Champions League final.

Werner produced a lacklustre display in last week’s first leg at Madrid’s Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium, wasting a golden opportunity to score before Christian Pulisic’s opener, but was on hand to break the deadlock at Stamford Bridge last night.

Kai Havertz’s initial dinked effort struck the crossbar and Werner could hardly have missed as he headed into an empty net from close range in the 28th minute to take his tally to 12 goals in all competitions for the Blues.

Mason Mount directed home Pulisic’s cross to give the hosts a comfortable 3-1 aggregate lead with five minutes remaining and Thomas Tuchel’s men held firm to set up an-English final with Manchester City in Istanbul on May 29.

Werner was on the receiving end of a barrage of criticism after his less-than-convincing display in Madrid just one week ago and the relief was clear to see on his face as Chelsea’s players wildly celebrated their victory at the full-time whistle.

Isabelle da Silva was among those who had chastised the forward for his wastefulness in the first leg, venting her frustrations in a video uploaded to her Instagram account.

‘This is karma, guys,’ she said.

‘Every team I go to there is a striker who keeps missing goals… this Werner, what is his name?!

‘We need a goal, we need to win this match but my attackers don’t want to score, I don’t know why they don’t score.’

But after Chelsea booked their place in the final, it was a different story altogether as she backtracked and told Werner she ‘loved’ him after all and that he was ‘the best’.

‘Werner, very good. That’s what I’m talking about,’ she said in a new video.

‘You know how to score a goal. You’re the best, my friend! Love you!

In his post-match interview with BT Sport, Werner joked it felt like ‘hours’ for the ball to fall out of the sky before he could head it home.

‘The last 10 minutes I was screaming a lot. I had no voice,’ the Germany international said.

‘When we started with the manager we were 10th in the league and now we reach everything – on the road to the top four, we can win the Champions League and the FA Cup.

‘Our team is incredible. How we control the rhythm against a team with world-class players. We are young but not stupid to make easy mistakes.

‘I had to wait a long time for the ball to come down. It took hours.

‘It was an easy goal. But the chances we create was very good. In the end, it was not easy to play against Real Madrid but we did it very well.’
